M31 Andromeda Galaxy (Redo)



I'm much happier with this iteration. I used the Astronomy Tools add-on for Photoshop to remove the blue halo around the stars and shrink them from within the original image, and ran some additional subroutines to make the galaxy more prominent. I'll hopefully get some more data over the next few weeks, weather permitting.
